Former F1 driver Mark Sura is predicting that this season will be the last match for four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel.
Vettel recently appeared on the BBC Question time Where Aston Martin Driver said that his mind often wrestles with the contribution of Formula 1 to climate change.
Vettel, a strong activist for environmental and social justice issues, admits that there was hypocrisy in his climate propaganda, which hurt him.

“It does [make me a hypocrite]He said, laughing Question time Audience.
“You’re right when you smile because these are the questions I ask myself every day.
“When I get out of the car, I must be thinking, ‘Is this something you should do – travel the world, waste resources?'”
Outside of the deal at the end of 2022, this is the closest Vettel has admitted that he is questioning his future at F1.
According to Surrey, as Aston Martin is unlikely to win another championship, the 34-year-old will fulfill his contract with the British team and retire.
“It doesn’t really look like the team can be the champion. So what should he do? Stay there?” He asked motorsport-total.com.
“It’s another inspirational question, if you know I’m fighting for tenth place, is it really an inspiration to give everything for a four-time world champion? I don’t know.
“I see him fulfilling the contract and saying goodbye.”
Sura added that he did not see the former Red Bull and Ferrari driver being acquired by another top team.
“He left Ferrari, Aston Martin had everything he needed, so it’s not working now,” he said.
Similarly, two-time champion Fernando Alonso finds himself out of contract at the end of the season.
Reports have been circulating since last year that Alonso – who is currently running a potentially fast but often unreliable Alpine – may be tempted to move to Aston Martin to see the rest of his career.
Alonso turns 41 this year, yet it’s clear he has more to offer. Vettel, on the other hand, has struggled to regain his winning form – and another world champion’s signed team boss could satisfy the hunger of another high-profile driver, Lawrence Strolle.
This could open the door for Australian Oscar Piastri to explode in the F1 scene.
The 21-year-old has lined himself up as an alpine reserve driver for this season, aiming to graduate in the permanent race seat in 2023.
French Esteban Oaken’s place in the Alpine has already been confirmed as he has committed to a three-year deal that will see him through to the end of 2024, but Alonso has yet to sign an extension.
The Spaniard has expressed his desire to stay but with Piastri waiting in the wings, a decision has not yet been made.
Alpine team captain Safnauer said the team would be better positioned to decide on their driver lineup during the British Grand Prix in July.
“We haven’t thought about it yet, because it’s a little early,” he said when asked about the timing of any decision by Motorsport.com.
“But around Silverstone we’ll probably talk about it.”
Rumors are circulating that Williams may replace fighting Canadian Nicholas Latifi.
This could provide another way for Piastry, Alpine had previously encouraged him to gain as much track experience as possible through opportunities with other teams like McLaren.
